Ahead of the European Parliament's vote on resolution
'Europen Stop TTIP' alliance sends open letter



The European Parliament is about to make another attempt to pass a resolution on the EU-US trade deal TTIP this Wednesday. Ahead of this critical vote, an alliance of over 480 organisations from across Europe is calling on MEPs to take the strong resistance from citizens seriously. 2.3 million Europeans have signed a self-organised European Citizens' Initiative that calls for an end of the TTIP negotiations. All MEPs today received the following letter in their native language, signed by the Stop TTIP organisations in their respective country: https://stop-ttip.org/open-letter/

The Solidarity Times facebook page is reported today that Water charges protestor Stephen Bennett is being sent to prison. Here is their report.

The Water charges protester Stephen Bennett will be in jail for one month tomorrow. He was not convicted of anything, instead the courts attempted to impose 'protest ban' bail conditions which he has continued to refuse to accept. All sections of the water charges movements should be demanding Stephens immediate and unconditional release.

As the country reflects on a new beginning, SPARK are asking you to extend equality to children. Ireland has failed to protect children from the recession and child poverty rates have seen a shocking increase over the last few years. However, the picture is even bleaker for children in one parent families. 23% of our children live in consistent poverty and that is before the draconian cuts to incomes of working lone parents are introduced in July.

The refusal of Dublin City Council to deny the Dublin Suicide Prevention Project with a tiny grant for an educational information leaflet from the recent council community grant awards has been described as “pathetic” by award winning suicide prevention campaigner Wayne Flanagan Tobin. Director of the Dublin Suicide Prevention Project (DSPP) Flanagan Tobin has secured many services for communities as far back as 2008 when he was instrumental in obtaining a Suicide Prevention Officer for Dublin-Mid Leinster with his then group “Wicklow Against Suicide” and has achieved many awards for his work in Dublin including the South West Inner City Network (SWICN) last October for his voluntary work.

“The arrests of AAA TD Paul Murphy, councillors Kieran Mahon and Mick Murphy and a fourth person who remains to be identified to us as we go to press is a cheap attempt to denigrate and weaken water charges movement as we approach make or break time – bills coming out and need for mass non-payment. ... read full story / add a comment
